It is also available from http://www.aiaa.org/content.cfm?pageid=2The large disparity between the time and length scales of an acoustically active flow\ud field, and the ones of the resulting generated acoustic field, is an issue in computational\ud aeroacoustics (CAA). Numerical schemes used to calculate the time and space derivatives\ud in CAA should exhibit a low dispersion and dissipation error. This paper presents the\ud implementation of a high-order finite difference scheme to model CAA problems. The\ud numerical scheme consists of a sixth-order prefactored compact scheme coupled with the\ud 4-6 Low Dispersion and Dissipation Runge-Kutta (LDDRK) time marching scheme. One-\ud sided explicit boundary stencils are implemented and a buffer zone is used to eliminate\ud spurious numerical waves. Results are in good agreement with a 1-D advection equation\ud benchmark problem. This constitutes a preliminary validation for the scheme to explore\ud and investigate the acoustic propagation of sound generated aerodynamically
